Walk in to a trusted environment. The team at Venture is always welcoming and super helpful when it comes to understanding your vehicles maintenance. Their advice is well trusted and with their client best interests, ALWAYS. They are happy to explain, show you, and run it by you as many times as it takes so you understand everything.I recommend this shop to anyone in Calgary. Give them the chance to service your vehicle and I promise you will not be disappointed.

My sons Mazda had a melt down and the guys at Venture worked tirelessly diagnosing the issue, turned out we had to replace the motor... twice! The first engine supplied to them was supposed to be tested and in good running order, but once installed they found it wasn’t. The supplier warrantied it and shipped a second engine that once installed worked great! Currently I am having some work done to my truck and couldn’t be happier with the quality of service, progress updates and heads up on things they see that I will need keep an eye on.100% will be referring friends and returning to Venture for future work!

These guys are the best! Brought our 99 4Runner in for some major service in September, they had the truck for about 2.5 weeks and were so great at keeping us informed and in the loop via email, phone call and text over the course of that time. We mostly dealt with Vic and he was fantastic; really personable and straightforward and upfront with everything. He was happy to give us lots of different options for parts and different pricing. Just had something else come up with the truck and Vic was great to chat with again, totally willing to just talk the issue through over the phone and offer some options and even remembered who we were! Will be happily using them going forward!!

Vic and Shawn are fantastic to deal with. Very happy I came across venture Motorworks. Did a complete inspection on my "seasoned" 4Runner and even lifted it up and showed me all the areas/issues with the vehicle and their order of importance. Unfortunately I can't remember the mechanics name who worked on my vehicle but he was incredibly helpful in explaining the issues with my 4Runner and physically being shown the concerns is a great way to build trust. This is now the only place I will take my vehicles. Thanks so much

I came here one day hoping to diagnose a vibration in my car. They did a thorough inspection and told me it was my tires. Since they didn't do any work beyond the diagnostic, they were also nice enough to not charge me. I'll be back for a wheel alignment someday.

I can't thank Venture Motorworks enough for what they did for us. We were on a road trip and had been to 2 other reputable shops that thought they had fixed our issue, but it wasn't until we got to Venture Motorworks that they were able to properly determine what was wrong with our 4Runner. They stayed there after hours on a Friday to diagnose the problem, and also were kind enough to squeeze us in last minute considering our situation. They were incredibly professional, but also made us feel like friends in their own shop. We felt that they truly cared about our vehicle being fixed once and for all, and went above and beyond to fix it. They also touched base with us later in the week once we had left to make sure we had got home safe, and to see if everything was running well, which is a first for us dealing with any other garage in the past. We were also very happy with the price. If you are looking for a reliable and trustworthy shop, this is it. Also, if you are looking for a shop that is knowledgeable in 4x4 work, especially Toyota's, this is the place. Again, thank you Shawn and Vic; we wish you all the best and hope to see you guys out on the trails one day!

My truck needed some suspension work and I'm more than happy I came across this shop. Was a pleasure to meet Shawn, Vic and Jared. They're all very honest, reasonable, knowledgeable, and overall just great people. Definitely recommend to anyone.

Vic, Shawn and their team go above and beyond and have delivered amazing service to both me and my Tundra on multiple occasions now! A comfy lounge and good communication are great perks on top of the quality work they perform. I appreciate that they always make me aware of things that they notice, without it feeling pushy to fix certain issues right away. I have shopped around a few times and have always been happy with their prices. Thanks for everything and I will continue to come back! Keep up the great work.

The shop honored the appointment time we set out over the phone even though it was later in the afternoon. I was met promptly and politely at the front desk and and was kept updated with progress of my vehicle. Once the service was complete I was given a courtesy wash! The team at Venture are top notch and very professional. I will not hesitate to bring all my vehicles here and encourage anyone and everyone to as well. Thanks Venture!!

I brought my 2020 Tacoma to Venture Motorworks for some suspension upgrades, bigger tires installed, and a special alignment to make everything fit together nicely. Awesome customer service / friendly atmosphere and vibe here, 10/10 coffee while you wait (the lounge also has a TV that had some off-road shows on, bonus!!) and overall I'm very very happy with the services. They took the time to really explain things to me, showed me important things to be aware of (such as a grease-able fitting on the suspension components) and also took the time to really show me my alignment specs. and settings. Overall top notch shop would highly recommend.
